Re: 24" bass drum - 10" main snare, surely not?

The kit sounds great, I just can not get used to the sound of small snare drums, even the sound of a 13" sometimes bothers me. Perhaps, there is some kind of music where this will sound good....

Re: Snare drum problem?

Perhaps, I am out of touch with things, but I know of the snare strings, and other things similar to them, and I am also familiar with the nylon straps. I have not heard of anyone using cloth. I...

Re: Bass drum makes windows vibrate

Take a piece of plexiglass, and if you can afford it, lexan (polycarbonite) instead. If you can, do not place the sheet of plexiglass/ lexan parallel, place it on a slight angle to the glass. You...

Re: Dealing with spine problems - experiences, advice

I have 7 discs that are ruptured now. I have to take it really easy. When I move a drum kit around I make the packages as light as possible, take my time and make many trips. I use a folding hand...

Re: Practice to Mastery?

With the amount of material out as well as the accessibility to the material in written or sound form, it is impossible to know it all. Therefore, another approach may be used and borrowed from...

Re: Great car for a drummer

My last car was a 2005 Honda Civic. I drive a lot between DC and NJ in the USA. I drive a lot and I like a car to handle like a car instead of a truck, or SUV.

While I was down in DC right...

Re: Video: Louie Bellson and Steve Gadd in Studio

I am not sure if this is the same video. But, I found this on Youtube instead of the Facebook page that I could not enter.

Re: Kevlar snare shells?

I agree with what Bermuda said below about Kevlar sounding like Carbon fiber. They are both to be used as reinforcement inside a polymer.

There is this relationship that I remember that is way of...

Re: Is it safe to play songs that require a double kick pedal with just a single pedal?

The link below is the son emulating the father who used a single pedal. Because the double pedal was not invented at that time and the Father had the fastest right foot on the planet to date, and...

Re: Drummer quiz: What kind of drummer are you?

Ok, what is it that prevents me from taking the survey? Could it be that I am in New Jersey? Perhaps, my eyes are too close together? Maybe, they are just too far apart?

Re: Who does this, really?

Just get a cover for the pick up bed, and some bungy chords to tie down the kit.

Re: Drums suck!

I hear the difference on a snare, of course with the snares off, and also on my 10, and 12 inch toms, but I can not hear the difference in my 13 tom and 16 floor and bass drum.

Re: ...for the jazz cats ...

Re: Drums suck!

Just thinking from the shirt sleeve, I can think of ways to measure the phase change from the batter to the resonant head. Of course you can measure it in both states with the vent and without the...

I was looking at the Smith Video saying the same thing to myself, and then I scrolled up to your post and I also like the Art Blakley tube better.

Re: Shoes and Gloves

I like playing with just socks, but sometimes my foot slips on the pedal. So I wear very well worn out boots, that are very flexible and do not slip on the pedal. Also when I play with just socks,...

Re: Two Drummers, One Band

Two drummers sells more drums. So if more bands do two drummers the price of drums and cymbals will go down, due to more mass production.

You would think companies like Ludwig, Pearl, Gretch,...

Re: Drum tab
